EVENT: THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE Season 2 Premiere Event With Alexa Davalos & Luke Kleintank in Los Angeles

Luke Kleintank and Alexa Davalos.


The Man in the High Castle had a season two premiere event in Los Angeles tonight.Based on Philip K. Dick’s award-winning novel, the Amazon Prime series imagines an alternate reality circa 1962 where the Japanese and Germans won World War II and divided the United States into three regions — the west coast as the Japanese Pacific States, the Rockies as a neutral zone and the east coast as the Greater Nazi Reich. Juliana Crain (Davolos) from the west coast bonded with New York double agent Joe Blake (Kleintank) in the neutral zone where they gave up their copies of a subversive film to the resistance in the first season. Both returned home to opposite coasts. Juliana to her boyfriend Frank Frink (Rupert Evans) in San Francisco who’d suffered at the hands of the Japanese in her absence and Joe to his boss American SS Obergruppenführer John Smith (Rufus Sewell) in New York City. In the second season, Juliana is in trouble with the Resistance after giving the latest film to Joe, meets the Man in the High Castle himself, and seeks asylum in the Greater Nazi Reich in order to find a key figure in one of the films. Joe, believing Juliana is dead, ends up in Berlin with his father Reichsminister Heusmann (Sebastian Roché).
